Imam in Virginia Claims Female Genital Mutilation is ‘an Honorable Thing to do’

Imam Shaker Elsayed was caught on film advocating for FGM, saying it is the ‘honorable thing to do’ for young girls.

The Virginia imam was touting his support during a lecture at the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Virginia, last Friday.

According to the Daily Mail: ‘(Circumcism is) a sunna for the boys, and the honorable thing to do – if needed – for the girls. This is something that a Muslim gynecologist can tell you if you need to or not,’ he said in the video, which was posted on the center’s YouTube page before being removed. 

If you’re wondering ‘wtf does sunna mean’, it is a word used by Muslims to describe traditional Islamic practices.

In the footage the imam continued: ‘There used to be a lady who used to do this for women, or, I mean, young girls.

‘She is expected to cut only the tip of the sexual sensitive part in the girl, so that she is not hyper-sexually active.

‘This is the purpose.’

Elsayed’s speech then changed course and focused on the reasons why the practice had to be carried out by someone with proper ‘training and knowledge’.

‘Of course, if that lady or surgeon cut more than the tip, it causes serious harm in the sexual life of the child when she grows up, and this is why the West thinks of (it) as sexual mutilation,’ he said.

‘Because in many of the Muslim countries, ladies and men who are not qualified and do not have the training or the knowledge as to what exactly needs to be done, they cut more than needed.

‘They end up damaging the sexual sensuality of the woman, when she becomes an adult, and she becomes cool or cold in the sexual relationship. And this is haram. This is prohibited, OK?’

Then this whacked out Muslim spiritual leader explains why he believes in FGM.

‘On the contrary, you see in societies where circumcision of girls is completely prohibited, hyper-sexuality takes over the entire society, and a woman is not satisfied with one person, or two, or three,’ he said.

‘This is, God forbid, now happening even in Muslim societies where they prohibit circumcision.

‘They use a mistake in practice to prohibit the tradition, and they end up causing a lot of damage on the other extreme side of the sexual life of a woman.’

Female Genital Mutilation has to be one of the most barbaric forms of ‘tradition’ any young Islamic girl has to encounter.

It is absolutely horrific.

Females in the USA at risk for FGM has increased over the past 10 years. Over 500,000 to be specific.
According to Population Reference Bureau (PRB) 166,173 girls under the age of 18 have already been mutilated — in the US and abroad. Thousands more have out of that age range have had the same done to them.
The politically correct would have you believe FGM is a ‘cultural phenomenon’ with no links to religion. However, cases of FGM are strictly linked to Muslim families. (source: Gerry Mackie, “Ending Footbinding and Infibulation: A Convention Account,” American Sociological Review)

There are ZERO health benefits for females undergoing FGM. In fact, some can die due to the effects.
